We invite everybody to test Torrent Stream /ACE Stream 2.0 software.
Version 2.0 for Ubuntu 11.10, 12.04 and 12.10:
This is a beta-version intended for testing first of all. Release version is planned for the nearest days. Some nonessential changes will be included to release version and also we will try to consider all possible wishes that our users may have during testing.
A new version will be added to our repository with release version.
We fixed some problems with dependencies and added Ubuntu 12.10 to the list of supported OS.
Important: due to transition to a new brand “ACE Stream” we changed names of packages and commands to run from console. New commands to start engine are:
- acestreamengine-client-console – start engine in console mode (without graphic interface)
- acestreamengine-client-gtk – start engine using graphic library gtk (on Ubuntu this start method is used by default)
- acestreamengine-client-wx – start engine using graphic library wx
- acestreamengine-stream – create broadcast
- acestreamengine-node – start support node
All commands are started with the same parameters as their analogs from the previous version.
Updated Magic Player:
Why did we jump to 2.0?
This release is a transitional version of Torrent Stream software to a new brand “ACE Stream”. ACE Stream is a new stage of TS development in which we will try to provide you with additional new and interesting features, when using our products and solutions. And to highlight the transition to this new development stage we decided to indicate this transitional product as version “2.0”.
1. Cache data encryption
All played content now is in a cache folder in encrypted form and not available for playing. It provides protection for client applications users from any charges of storing played online content. It also gives ability to content authors to use all potential of BitTorrent, allowing users of Torrent Stream/ACE Stream to enjoy playing licensed content that has limitation for free distribution.
Saving files with a new caching system.
You can save files that don’t have a protection from free distribution.
After playing file “Save” button will appear on the player’s control panel (web player or desktop player).
By clicking it you can save a file anywhere.

This is an absolutely new plug-in’s implementation, so test it very actively.
Context menu is added in the full screen mode in order to change some parameters (audio tracks, subtitles, crop, etc.).
